. there are rules of international law. ukraine is a sovereign country with borders and the fact there's elements within its border which is are dissatisfied with the democratic government doesn't mean that another country's permitted to invade. there are ways to resolve disputds and reassure minorities in a particular area or people speaking a different language of their security and their safety but doesn't justify a military action of russia, an act of aggression into crimea. so that's just a false pretext, i believe, for russia's position here and for the aggression. there are many ways to resolve disputes that might exist or disagreements but this is about a basic principle of international law that respect it is boards of a country and right to sovereignty. >> really quickly here, 25, 30 seconds. and this may sound like a simple question but important question, as well. why should folks in this country, why should we care about precisely when's happening right now in ukraine, in crimea? >> well, we should care, of course, any time a sovereign nation with its borders clearly defined is invad

, and what happens next in the international community. there are pro-european union elements in ukraine, there are pro-russian elements in ukraine. both of those sides i would wager, phil ittner over the course of the last few days and months have been vying for your attention and the world's attention? >> that's absolutely right, del. and that is the reason for caution. this is as much a propaganda war as it is the potential for a real armed conflict. so this acting government which knows it has to gain world opinion. it has to gain the upper hand in the propaganda war, they are quite likely to capitalize on a situation like that. i'm not saying that that happen. i'm simply saying what the foreign ministry said -- and this plays into position that the government would like to put out -- that these are russian troops. so kiev clearly keeping a very close eye on this, and clearly wanting to put out their version of events in order to gain that public opinion worldwide, del. >> thank you very much. please stand by. we're going to take a break. we're moments away from secretary of state jo
of the geopolitical situation but internally in russia is keeping a close eye on what happened in ukraine. it's not that long ago we saw thousands of russian take to the streets, as well. it's a very different fine mick domestically here but when russian look to a ukraine prosperous and growing in a civil society with independent judiciary, other things that we associate with the western democracy, there are going to be russians here who look at that and then also look at the kremlin and the way things are run here inside russia. >> phil ittner joining us live from moscow. thank you very much. perhaps the mystery of mysteries today in ukraine, why were there troops surrounding airports in crimea. who were they and where do they come from? we have all the details. jennifer, what are the latest on the tensions in crimea. >> we had two incidents today, first at the airport where armed men went in early in the morning to the airport terminal, had a look around and now there are still armed men there. the airport is operating normally. we were at the airport. they won't tell us who they are, who t

's no obama plan to address that. he says that russia is violating ukraine's sovereignty and international law. >> what cannot be done is for russia with impunity to put its soldiers on the ground and violate basic principles that are recognized around the world. >> reporter: but that, in fact, is what putin is doing. as he showed off more troops near st. petersburg today. some in congress, some democrats, would slap sanctions onymous cow's banks that putin depends on. >> it would effectively shut down russia's economy. >> reporter: john mccain says -- >> this is a foreign policy where nobody believes in america's strength anymore. >> reporter: the president says he will ask congress to okay humanitarian aid for ukraine. he's sending jsohn kerry to kie. they publicly have no plan to deal with putin. >> editorially, from my point of view, right now, vladimir putin is the enemy, not president obama even though some american politicians are showboating in front of conservative conferences. let me get the latest from the middle of this crisis. bill neely is live for us in the crimea this evening.
international monitors to deploy throughout ukraine. these are the people who can actually identify legitimate threats and we are asking, together with government of ukraine, together with european communities, for large numbers of observers to be able to come in here and monitor the situation and be the arbiters of truth versus fiction. russia, if it wanted to help deescalate this situation, could return its troops to the barracks, live by the 1997 base agreement, and de-escalate rather than expand their invasion. now, we would prefer that. i come here today at the instruction of president obama to make it absolutely clear the united states of america would prefer to see this de-escalated. we would prefer to see this managed through the structures of legal institutions, international institutions that we've worked many years in order to be able to deal with this kind of crisis. but if russia does not choose to de-escalate, if it is not willing to work directly with the government of ukraine as we hope they will be, then our partners will have absolutely no choice but to join us to continue to
like the key lies in ukraine, if he loses ukraine, the gambit to become flup shall in the international arena is doomed. that might drive a desperation on his part. one might speculate that the russian economy has been turning down. vladimir putin, in the last couple of years, has been playing to russian nationalism to legitimate his own rule. this could be something of a distraction from problems at home. this said, i think the costs to russia in economic and political terms of an invasion of ukraine will be so high that vladimir putin will regret the move if, in fact, he follows through as it looks like he'll do. >> okay. thank you for your time and insight. we appreciate it. >> we are closely following the standoff in ukraine. more on russia's siege at the bottom of the hour and you can get the latest onlinement still ahead on al jazeera america. a bizarre mass stabbing in china, 33 killed, plus... >> i'm stephanie stanton where heavily rain in california are putting the neighbourhood under the threat of mudslides. >> a snowboarder who snuck on to a closed trail triggered an av lamp.

. >>> shifting overseas now to the big international story. the tug of war in ukraine. this is the scene in crimea. the white house says russian forces essentially control the peninsula. president obama, the european union and nato all say russia is violating international law, but can they do anything about it? nbc's ian williams is live in eastern ukraine. we're hearing russian fighter jets overnight violated ukraine's air space. >> reporter: this is what we're hearing from ukrainian government sources, the fighter jets flew over the black sea, but within ukrainian air space. this is just the latest development stoking fears of wide eruption and intervention here. this city in eastern ukraine, russian speaking, and the fear is that this may be one place to face russian tension. you may see over my left shoulder the statue of lenin, the focus of pro russian protesters. there was violence and sinister developments over the weekend here, protests, clashes which led to more than 100 people being injured. clashes between pro moscow protest ersz aers and supportere government. the pro moscow

. >> the united states will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military interventioning in ukraine. >> now, you've called this an invasion. so what are the costs? >> well, we're now discussing all of the options. this is an act of aggression that is completely trumped up in terms of its pretext. it's really 19th century behavior in the 21st century and there's no way to start with that if russia persists in this, that the g-8 countries are going to assemble in sochi. that's a starter. but there's much more than that. russia has major investment and trade needs and desires. i think there's a unified view by all of the foreign ministers i talked with yesterday, all of the g-8 and more that they're simply going to isolate russia, they're not going to engage with russia in a normal business as usual manner, that russia is inviting the international stage. there could even be ultimately asset freezes, visa bans, there could be certainly disruption of any of the normal trade routine. and there could be business drawback on investment in the country. th
for ukraine turning over their nuclear capabilities that russia would honor crimea being part of ukraine. their violation of international treaty which they had signed -- this is serious stuff. if he thinks it is an excuse to protect the russian citizens, what about estonia? poland? romania? these countries have russian speaking individuals. that is why hitler went into the native land, to protect the german citizens. position that if allowed to stand, will be a violation of everything we stood for in the way of territorial integrity and sovereignty nations. >> what do you think will stop him? >> right now i do not think there is much to be honest with you. first of all, we need to have a reevaluation of our relationship with russia. discard what has failed, with this feckless policy. i would renew the missile defense program in the czech wouldic and in poland i have some nato exercises with the baltic states. bill thatexpand a targets individuals who are responsible for this. there are other things we can do. the initial signals out of encouraging as far as sanctions are concerned. >> i
with the international immunity in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in the ukraine. >> obama is considering a boycott of the g8 summit in sochi. it is unlikely that such gestures will discourage the russian government from its course in the crimean government. all signs point to confrontation. the ukrainian government has placed the troops on high alert. it emphasizes that it will not bow to provocation from russia. >> we are going to go live now to our correspondent in moscow. putin says he still making up his mind. they have approved the troops. this is more than a show of strength. >> it does seem like more than that, actually. experts have been telling us that it is not like that. he is just around the corner. he wants to take time and put pressure on the ukraine to see how they react to this. his spokesperson came out one hour ago and said he is now closely looking at the nouation, which also has reason for panic yet. increased the stake in the war of nerves and will get serious. hardly anybody has doubts about that now. is a difficultin position. he has to app
obama says russia's moves into ukraine could isolate it from its allies. he was responding to vladimir putin's statements that they reserve the right to protect russians in the crimea. >> there's a strong belief that russia's actions are violating international law. president vladimir putin seems to have a different set of lawyers making a different set of interpretations, but i don't think that's fooling anybody. i think everybody recognises that although russia has legitimate interests in what happens in the neighbouring state, it does not give it the right to use force as a means of exerting influence inside of that state. >> we believe that if we make a decision, if i make a decision to use armed forces, it will be legitimate. corresponding to the norms of international law because there was an appeal by the president of ukraine. and according to obligations and in this case it coincides with our interests to protect those people who we consider are closely linked to us. >> i think that this is not been a sign of strength, but rather is a reflection that country's near russia have
and children. forlso said there's no need reaction right now they need to protect international law and the legitimacy of the elected president in ukraine, viktor yanukovych. are acting americans -- not a very cooperative tone. >> urgent national resonant are here with us on the set. producer isnational team one with the the set. >> he will not intervene beyond intoorders of crimea ukraine proper. he does reserve the right to do so. a message tosends the west, this might not necessarily be over. we can do already the dutch more than we already have militarily speaking. that is the main point to come out of that press conference. the is also interesting narrative that you can hear coming out of moscow. they have a totally parallel reading of the situation in ukraine the best versus how the west season. clinton says you cannot blame us for what we are doing because he is telling that the west has legitimacy has all wrong. not oustedkovych was -- the constitution was not respected. they showed the letter at the u.n. yesterday, therefore they have not only legitimacy, but law on their s
so, working with the international community to help stabilize the situation. and we have sent a clear message that we are prepared to work with anybody if their genuine interest is making sure that ukraine is able to govern itself. and as i indicated before, something that i think has not been emphasissed enough, they are currently scheduled to have elections in may. and everybody in the international community should be invested in making sure that the economic deterioration inside of the ukraine stops, but also that these elections proceed in a fair and freeway in which all ukrainians, including russian speakers inside of ukraine, are able to express their choice of who should lead them, and if we have a strong robust election, there should be no question as to whether the ukrainian people are governing themselves without the kinds of outside interference that we see russia observe. thank you very much. >> you've been listening to president obama addressing the crisis in ukraine. before he spoke, you heard from secretary of state john kerry, who is still speaking, i believe
of ukraine's sovereignty, ukraine's territorial integrity, they're a violation of international law. i think the strong condemnation that it's received from countries around the world indicates the degree to which russia is on the wrong side of history on all this. >> they accused russia of a major conflict as soldiers waited for a potential attack from russian forces amassed in the region. joining me from odessa, ukraine, is nicolai petro, a fullbright research fellow in ukraine. i think there's a lot of confusion about how ukrainians are reacting to this. ukrainians is a massive category. that masked a lot of internal divisions. ukrainians in the eastern part of the country that is more predominantly russian speaking, how are they reacting to what has happened? >> with many of the same reactions that people throughout this country are reacting. i would say there have always been those here who feel that the breakup of the ussr was a mistake, but that was a minority. a larger group would welcome close relations with russia, but the largest group has always wanted association with the e.u. p
